Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

The Killing Continues!

We just received the latest CA-125 number from Dr. Phillips' office: We're down to 32!!!

So, the killing of the cancer cells continues. You may remember that the CA-125 right before chemo # 2 was 97, down from 313 after round #1 and a pre-op number of around 1,275. The latest number is based on the blood test that was taken right before Judy's third treatment on Tuesday of this week.

Judy is obviously elated, and so am I. Yes, these are just numbers, but these numbers are the only thing that gives us any kind of idea of where we are, and right now things look as if they're working.

Merry Christmas indeed--let's keep killing the bastard.
